Post Covid travel trends from the global media

As travel changes in response to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic we take a look at five major travel publications and what they are predicting our holidays will look like in the (hopefully) not-so-distant future.


Conde Nast Traveller

Tom Barber co-founder of Original Travel  recently wrote a feature for Conde Nast Traveller about six travel trends that he predicts will be big post-lockdown.  His six tips are:

  • Industry expertise will be more valuable than ever – book via a trusted travel agent
  • Sustainable travel will become a key consideration – ensure your hotel or resort is doing their part for the planet
  • Travellers will want their holidays to have meaning – figuring out a way to give back while having a bit of fun
  • Visit destinations that rely on tourism – helping to support the local economy directly
  • Longer trips will become more common – arrive at a destination and relax a few more days or turn it into a work-cation
  • People will crave holidays that offer connections – creating connections with each other and also the places you visit through new experiences

 

South China Morning Post

The South China Morning Post talks of trends around:

  • Ethical wildlife tourism
  • Less mass, more mind – highlighting the Travellers’ aversion to
    mass tourism and cookie-cutter travel experiences
  • More sustainable, compassionate and mindful operating systems after the Covid-19 pandemic

Asia Tatler

The trends from this Asia Tatler article include:

  • Travellers will be “searching for sanctuary, privacy and a greater
    sense of calm and peacefulness.”
  • Off-the-beaten track and natural destinations are sure to become
    even more in demand.
  • Travel for health and wellbeing - Andrea Oschetti from Blue Flower Travel shares with Tatler his prediction around “a rise in wellness travel with people realising, during this pandemic, how important and valuable good health is.”
  • Overall travelling with a greater sense of intention and meaning, those looking to explore the world of luxury travel will also want to engage and connect with local communities.

Forbes:

“Ultimately, safety while traveling in the era of COVID-19 starts with sanitising
and face masks, and extends to thoroughly distanced or private experiences
whenever possible.” Departures
